    i cry and get upset over any tiny thing. if i see anyone sad then it makes me ten times sadder. if i see anyone cry (even if its someone i dont particularly like) it will make me close to crying and sad. i cry in all movies/books with sad scenes and if i see anything sad in the world or anywhere i am or on the news i will cry/have tears in my eyes.

    how do i stop this?

    It is good that you are a compassionate and perceptive person (and are, apparently, sensitive in a way), which is all nice, however please try not to let those things really get to you, or be "touched" by them to such an extent that they cause you to be upset or even make you depressed, etc.
    Though it might be difficult to achieve immediately, it should be possible to control this, and the way you perceive things and how "deeply" you take them in and the way they influence you. Gradually, you will be able to train yourself, to put it like that, and you will get there.
    Try telling yourself that although life has two opposite sides, it does have a positive side and expressions too, and that the sad side of it does not necessarily or always (or at all) has to prevail. Good luck !
